Apple Requiring Developers to Submit iPhone 5 Screenshots for the App Store

The iPhone 5 drops tomorrow, and Apple has told all third-party developers to start submitting iPhone 5 screenshots to the App Store. Developers that update their apps to be optimized for the iPhone 5 must include screenshots optimized for the device’s taller 4-inch display.

Cult of Mac:

Many popular App Store apps have already been updated for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, including the official Facebook app today. There were original concerns that developers wouldn’t have time to get their apps up to date for the iPhone 5, but it looks like updates are rolling out at a fairly rapid pace.

The new screenshot resolution requirements are:

  • 640 x 1136 (portrait)
  • 640 x 1096 (portrait)
  • 1136 x 640 (landscape)
  • 1136 x 600 (landscape)

According to Apple:

If you deliver a new app binary that takes advantage of the new screen size for iPhone 5 or iPod touch (5th generation) without screenshots in the new dimensions, the status of your app will change to Missing Screenshot. Your app will not be reviewed until you upload screenshots with the correct dimensions. You will also need to upload screenshots for any added localizations you have set up on iTunes Connect.

Any app not optimized for the iPhone’s taller display will be centered with black letterboxing.
